The electronics manufacturing industry in the US is dead, no one will admit
to it though. China has become the manufacturing center of the US......
It's time we in the US woke up and figure out a way to be competitive, lower
the cost of doing business, and reduce manufacturing costs.
Ain't gonna happen, wer'e spoiled by a high standard of living, and people
here won't work for 2 rice beans a day.
Korean and Taiwanese factories are also feeling teh pinch, and in order to
survive, have to either put up factories in China, or ally themselves with
manufacturing concerns over there.
